A life style blog about having 28 days apart, then only 14 days together. The notorious long distance relationship and how I pass the time waiting for his 28 day work week to end and his proverbial friday to bring him home. This is me passing the time as a women in a serious relationship, whos other half is 2,000 kilometers away for 2/3's of the time.
My favourite accessory thus far this Spring has been my black fedora style hat. Its floppy but not too big and I love the way it accents the black buttons on my grey coat.
I got it from Blue Notes at 40% off so after tax it came to about 8 dollars. It was a great steal! But I see them everywhere, I was going to get a hazy blue one that had reddish accenting around the base but it was too big for me. Luckily I found this one though!
Hello all! So since my first ootd post went over well I thought I would do another one for today!
Today I’m wearing maroon leggings and this crochet lace top that I got from target before they pulled out of Canada ( 😦 sigh).
I’m also wearing these cute leather flats I got for Spring. I was worried they were a little to hipster for me to pull off but after wearing them regularly for about a month I think its safe to say they fit perfectly into my wardrobe! I’m also wearing the gold necklace and owl pendant my Dad got me for Valentines this year. Yes, my Dad gets my sister and I V-day gifts, because we’ll always be his girls 🙂 my Mom always gets the best gift from him though. Gotta love a man with good taste!
I hope you all like my attire for my day of work and exams!
So today while I was perusing WalMart finding little things to make the apartment more homey, I came across 4 dos lip balms that I don’t have… and one especially I needed to have.
I already had a few, some that I couldn’t track down for the picture. My favourite, that is in the glove box of my car, is the melon one. The light green one if you don’t know what one I’m talking about, its just so fresh and fruity and I love the way it smells.
Today I picked up blueberry acai, summer fruit, passion fruit, and most excitingly vanilla mint. I love mint, but unfortunately I found that the chocolate mint one I already have burns my lips abit if I put to much on. So I’m hoping the vanilla mint one will be better!
The first 3 are all deliciously fruity smelling and will be perfect for spring! The passion and summer fruit are pretty similar but I feel like the passion fruit one has dark berries in it and the summer fruit is more tree fruit and red berries, if you know what I mean.
And on the note of the vanilla mint…. IT IS AMAZING! It smells even better than the chocolate mint and doesn’t burn my lips at all! And I love how cute it looks with the swirl! Definitely my new favourite and a definite recommend for a new flavour of lip balm!
During the first week after Mr. F goes back to work I feel very lost.. and I often find myself at the mall. Anyways, I underwent some retail therapy in the cosmetics section of Shoppers Drug Mart.
I love going through the aisles picking out new products to try and eventually, hopefully, find the best for me. I got some new brands, products, and colors than Ive normally tried and I’m going to let you all know how they worked out!
New Foundation and Powder – Maybelline New York “Fit Me! Matte + Loveless” liquid foundation and powder.
I had been using a foundation and powder combo from Revlon, that was actually the same number as this one, 110 (I’m pasty, I know). I do like the coverage this foundation offers, however I’m a little worried, as I always so when I get a new foundation, that it may be a little too light for my skin. Let me know what you guys think when I post a picture at the bottom of this post of my finished makeup look!
New Blush and Trying out Bronze – Covergirl “Checkers” blush in the natural rose shade & Essence “Sun Club matt bringing powder”.
I do really like the blush! Normally I go with a little darker pink/ rose color for my cheeks but I like this light pink for a really sweet look. I also hadn’t used boozer before but I decided to give it a try and I’m liking what I see! When I got home with the boozer I realized that it did say right on it that it was for darker skin, and I have very, very pale skin, so I was kinda worried I just made a useless purchase. However, I actually really like it and I think the darker color of the powder is perfect for the subtle use and look I tried to accomplish. So all in all a good purchase!
New eyeliner – Essence Gel Eyeliner and Gel Eyeliner Brush.
So I normally use a liquid eyeliner with a felt tip, but I thought I would try my hand at gel liner. And the thing about eyeliner is it can sense fear and will thus nor perform the way you want it to. Obviously its just a matter of getting used to it, because after a couple attempts and rehashes of the face the night I first bought it I started to get the hang of it. So, I do like it I just think I’m going to need some more practise before I can call myself the eyeliner goddess I can with a felt tip liquid eyeliner… lol. However though I’m not really a fan of this brush, I think its just a little to thick, but I have an old brush I never knew what was for before, that I think I may use… now to dig it out of my old makeup bin at my parents…
New lipstick – Rimmed London Airy Fairly Lipstick #070
I bought this shade because it reminds me of this lipstick I loved that met an unfortunate end smushed up at the bottom of my purse. I like this color because it is natural enough to just seem to accentuate the natural color of my lips. This one, if too much applied does seem to get alittle more pinky than I would hope but that’s just an issue of product application, Im sure ill be fine with just a quick swipe over the lips. Which is really why I bought it, to have a perfect lipstick to use on the go.
Not new eye shadow – Maybelline and Revlon Palettes
These aren’t new but I thought I would add the drugstore eyeshadow I used to complete the drugstore makeup look haul. I just used toe neutral shades but I do love all the shades I have in these palettes.
So here is the finished look with my new makeup, let me know what you guys think of my new stuff!
